After performing an energy audit of the tour, JustGreen purchased carbon offsets to offset the carbon emissions for Florida Georgia Line's first major headline tour. Florida Georgia Line's sold-out HERE'S TO THE GOOD TIMES 2013 Tour included 32 cities nationwide. See the tour here at www.tuneinwithjustgreen.com. This is part of the year-long commitment JustGreen made to offset the carbon footprint of 4,000 Live Nation concerts across the country.
JustGreen also sponsored a nation-wide sweepstakes with Live Nation. Cassandra Estojak won a carbon neutral concert experience with breakout duo Florida Georgia Line. Cassandra and a guest flew to West Palm Beach, Florida to plant trees with the reigning CMAVocal Duo of the Yearbefore they took the stage at the Cruzan Amphitheatre.
"We had a great time meeting our lucky winner, Cassandra in West Palm Beach, planting a tree and learning more about JustGreen and how we can help spread awareness of the cause to help our planet," said FGL's Tyler Hubbard.
"We have offset 4,000 Live Nation concerts in 2013 including two complete tours -the Florida Georgia Line and Portugal. The Man," says GP Manalac, EVP JustGreen. "Being able to work with amazing talent like Florida Georgia Line to help encourage the music industry and concertgoers to make greener lifestyle choices is a great opportunity for us all to make a positive impact on the environment."
